i arrived here and was met with a nice friendly staff member. He was helpful and had my bed ready in good time. I required a bottom bunk and this was done no problem They had a good luggage room free which was nice. Showers were good and clean and beds were comfy for a good sleep. There were young... More

Stayed here the Friday night of Ed Sheeran, we had a 6 bed dorm booked which was perfect.. Rooms are clean, beds are comfy and location is ideal less than 5 minutes walk to Henry street, we parked at Clearys Q park as had seen from previous reviews that you get a discount only paid €12.50 for 24 hours parking,...

An OK hostel. Huge, spacious rooms but not terribly sociable and staff are so unfriendly - not at all welcoming. LOCATION works well - a short walk to O'Connell street and the centre of town, but off on a quiet street so it's more peaceful than most. BEDS were comfortable enough. Flattest pillow I've ever had the misfortune to encounter.... More

We stayed here for one night to go to a gig at slane castle and were not disappointed! We booked the private enquire room which was huge! Didn't feel like a hostel at all. The entrance is in a separate building to the main hostel so it's basically like your own little flat. Obviously the decor is old and tired... More

Stayed at the hostel four nights with a friend whilst spending every day exploring Dublin. Big rooms with many soccets and big lockers for your things. Best part was the location, only ten minutes from city centre and right in the middle of the oriental food area. Helpful staff and basic breakfast for €2 also made our stay more enjoyable

We had a great time, the hostel is not that far from the downtown, we liked the location, the rooms and the bathrooms are very comfortable, and the lobby guys are cool people. We definetely would stay again!

Like the title says this was the first time I saw a clean shower in a hostel. Unfortunately I cannot say the same about the rooms, toilets and ever common areas. Wifi was good and we had plenty of areas to charge the phones (bedrooms included). Breakfast was an adicional 2€ which we did not take.

Basically everything you need from a cheap-ish hostel. It was clean, quiet and in a convenient location. Staff were friendly and accommodating (allowing us to leave our luggage there even after we had checked out). Bathroom facilities were limited but clean. Some nice features such as table tennis table, sofas and TV, vending machines and computers and free WiFi. We... More

The hostel was nice enough, but the staff were a bit abrupt when we first arrived. There were 4 of us travelling & we booked a dorm together but when we got there we were placed into two separate dorms, but next door to each other! The games room was a good place to chill & play pool and the... More

We booked a short 2 night 3 day break in Dublin. The hostel was well staffed, with nice and friendly members of the team (even after our key card fiasco) nice and spacious rooms with high ceilings. Clean as best as can be. Great kitchen facilities and good social and relaxing communal area. Lockers in room are a good plus... More
